title Designing for the unpredictable: Novel model for the design of emergence through real-world behavior
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 847- 860
summary Most current approaches to unpredictability, within architectural discourse, lie either in the design of unbuildable emergent shapes or in performance simulations to test already designed outcomes. Even though some recent explorations have enabled the construction of emergent shapes, the unpredictability of real-world behaviors as the rules’ source for the unpredictability of shape generation remains unexplored. This paper proposes a novel model for the design of unpredictable buildable shapes, based on real-world behaviors. Initially, current methodologies are studied in order to find how they deal with the unpredictability of shape generation and real-world behaviors. Finally, a comprehensive novel model is proposed and tested through an empirical experiment, to show how it can be applied in architecture.
